Have you always wanted to write a story, but have no idea where to start? Well, is this the month for you?!
My name is Kirste — yes, me again, hi — I’m a digital illustrator and writer based in Barmera. I’m on my own journey to rewrite my first novel, Violet.
So, why am I here?
Part of Things has given me the opportunity to talk about something for a whole month. Something that would stimulate and nurture a creative Riverland, and bring them together.
We’re talking all things writing!
For four weeks, I’ll be bringing you resources I’ve found helpful in my time writing, personal experiences and a couple of fun tasks to stretch your creative muscles. There will be a different focus each week — starting tomorrow (later today?) with ideas and inspiration!
I constantly encounter hiccups while writing. I find it comforting hearing from others in the industry and considering new angles to tackle my novel. I know I’m not the only one. This is about coming together, sharing experiences, sharing resources, and lending a hand to our creative peers.
Whether you’ve never written a story before, or a writing-world veteran, we hope you’ll all find something new and helpful to your journeys.
I’d love to see to learn what you’ll be bringing to writers all over the Riverland!
No pressure!! We all have very different experiences in this literary world, hopefully hearing a little from me will bring some hidden writers from the Riverland’s scrublands 🙂
